In the video Solid Landscapes, the artist “spells out” the never-ending growth of usable and productive (anti-)landscapes by reproducing and multiplying evidence of a dramatic change that is occurring in an incremental manner around the world. It is an allegory of societal processes that follow one another at an ever faster pace, primarily due to the dynamics of economic and human population growth, technological advances and the ever-increasing flood of information. The flight over monocultures of production begins with the ready-made components and goes deep into the pits where raw materials are mined to produce commodities. The viewer sees from a bird's-eye perspective an image that may be a piece of Earth, but one cannot be sure whether it is reality, or merely a bad futuristic vision.
